BANDON man Luke Holland (24) is hoping to get the New Year off to a great start by unearthing a fortune when he appears on the National Lottery Winning Streak game show next week, Saturday, January 5th, 2019.
Luke was in a pub in Cork city catching up with friends a couple of Saturdays ago when a call came through to say his name had been selected to appear on Winning Streak. Luke wasn’t buying this initially, but his phone lit up for about half an hour after so he finally believed the good news.
Luke, who graduated with a degree in geology from UCD in 2017, lives in Mullingar, Co Westmeath, where he works in mineral exploration for Group Eleven Resources. There is been great excitement in Bandon ahead of Luke’s upcoming Winning Streak appearance with family and friends planning to make the trip to Dublin to cheer him on. They include his mum and dad, Colette and Sean, his two brothers Simon and Adam and girlfriend Patricia.
Luke is a massive rugby fan and used to play for his local side, Bandon RFC. He gave up playing when he moved to Westmeath for work. He is an avid supporter of Munster rugby.
Winning Streak returns to RTÉ One next Saturday, January 5th, co-presented as usual by Marty Whelan and Sinead Kennedy. As ever one of the lucky five players will get the chance to spin the wheel and win up to €500,000.
